Spring Fling

Friday, May 3, 2024

Spring Fling is a special time for the entire Bement community to enjoy an afternoon of fun and games outside. All students, faculty, staff, friends, and family are invited to join the fun with activities for all ages, including games, fun run and a raffle.


Time: 3:30 - 5:30 p.m.

Location: The Bement School main campus.

Parking and Pick-Up: We ask that participants please park on Old Main street, and check your child out with the faculty on duty at the sidewalk.

Please note that all children must be accompanied by an adult at Spring Fling. Students must not depart from Spring Fling on their own (i.e. no walks, trips back to the dorms).

Volunteers Needed

Spring Fling is a community-building event run by the Bement Family Association and The Bement School. Volunteers make everything happen! We will be looking for adult volunteers to help with set up, take down, and more. You will be amazed at how much fun you will have, and how much your help matters! Email the BFA if you are interested in volunteering.

Fun Run

The Fun Run is a non-competitive lap around historic Deerfield. We hope you'll join the fun whether you walk, skip, push a stroller, or run! Everyone is invited!


All students will receive free tickets at Spring Fling to enter into the raffles of their choice. Prizes will include: choose a day of free dress for students and teachers in your building (Keith, Drake, Kittredge), a basket or gift certificate from the school store, and more!

Spring Fling T-shirt Contest

Every year the Spring Fling t-shirts are designed by the students. Each student is encouraged to draw a picture of what they think should go on the Spring Fling t-shirts. A team of judges will decide which drawing will end up on the 2024 Spring Fling t-shirt.

One winner will be chosen from the lower school and one winner from the upper school. Both designs will be printed on the t-shirts and the winners will be announced at morning meeting on May 3. All students will receive a t-shirt at that time.

The design contest is already finished and we're excited to announce winners and distribute t-shirts on May 3!
